Student Life in Guildford
The University of Surrey is just ten minutes’ walk from the centre of Guildford, named the eighth best place to live in the UK in the Halifax Quality of Life Survey 2015. Guildford and the surrounding area is a great place to live, offering a vibrant blend of entertainment, culture and history. Guildford is a great base from which to explore the rest of south east England - and beyond. Guildford's cobbled high street is home to some of the best shopping in the region. It also offers an abundance of places for foodies to enjoy from cool cafes and cosy pubs to stylish restaurant and lively bars. Beautiful parks are also great places to unplug and relax during your studies. Live music and events are constant throughout the year to keep you entertained and getting every bit out of your uni experience!
Guildford is easily accessible. It’s adjacent to the A3 main road and on the direct railway line between London Waterloo and Portsmouth. There is also a frequent bus service between the Guildford town centre and the University campus, which runs late into the night. Major train lines also allow for easy travel to other parts of the country and beyond.

They are the super duper fun and relaxed University of Surrey Jazz Orchestra! They play all types of jazz, including swing like our favourite Sing! Sing! Sing!

They are the People and Planet society, part of a national network of student groups from Universities & Colleges across the UK People and Planet Network; a democratic grass root organisation campaigning on environmental, world poverty and social justice issues.
They are a student based and student led dance squad. They celebrate a number of styles, welcome all abilities and focus on enjoyment! They have 7 competitive dance teams that rehearse every week: Advanced Jazz, Novice Jazz, Advance Contemporary, Novice Contemporary, Tap, Ballet, and Hip Hop.

- Centre for Sustainable Enterprise Management Research Day 18 Oct 2016: The Centre for Sustainable Enterprise Management (CSEM) at Surrey Business School is pleased to commence our series of Research Days with our speaker Pascual Berrone, Associate Professor of Strategic Management at IESE Business School.
- Introduction to Focus Groups 9 Nov 2016: This course provides an introduction to the methods involved in organising and conducting focus groups. The course is divided into two sections. The first section explores how and when to use focus groups in social research. Topics covered include planning for focus groups, developing focus group schedules and moderating focus groups. The second section provides participants with an opportunity to either facilitate or be a member of a focus group discussion.
- Introduction to Qualitative Interviewing: Qualitative in-depth interviews are a much used and useful research tool in academic and applied social research. This one-day course provides an introduction to the theory and practice of qualitative interviewing. The course is designed primarily for researchers with minimal or no experience of qualitative interviewing. However the course may also be useful for more experienced researchers who have had little formal training or who wish to reflect on their practice. The day includes sessions exploring the characteristics of qualitative research, how to prepare for an interview, tips on how to conduct interviews effectively and the development of discussion guides for interviews. The teaching sessions are interspersed with practical exercises exploring different types of interaction that might occur during an interview and various aspects of interviewing practice. Participants will be given the opportunity to carry out a practice interview, experience being interviewed and observe interviewing taking place. We will explore a variety of ethical and other issues as these arise in discussion.
